Houston take on Memphis Grizzlies at the Toyota Center overnight and the Rockets can extend their winning streak to five games with some room to spare in this match-up.
Houston Rockets -5.5 @ 25/28
The Rockets have recovered from their early season struggles and are now one of the form teams in the NBA.
Houston are 9-1 in their last 10 games and at home they’ve won their last eight games in a row. Only two of those victories have been by less than five points, and they can beat a -5.5 handicap when they face a Memphis outfit with a poor road record.
The Grizzlies are 8-10 on their travels overall and more recently they have just two wins in their last seven. Houston claimed a 105-97 win at the FedExForum earlier this month and with home court advantage this time around they should be able to claim another comfortable win over Memphis.
Everton to win and both teams to score @ 59/20
We look to the early New Year’s Day kick off in the Premier League for today’s second tip and Everton can see off visitors Leicester City.
Both sides have been in mixed form, particularly the visitors who somehow followed up a win over Man City by losing to Cardiff.
Everton are without a win in their last three at Goodison Park and suffered a heavy defeat to Spurs in their last home match. Prior to that they were perhaps unlucky to be held to draws by Newcastle and Watford and can get back to winning ways by seeing off the Foxes, although the away side can make a game of it by grabbing a goal of their own.
